The Brazil international will offer the Lazio boss the freedom to be more flexible with his formations, tactics and team selections. He has the quality and the experience to make an immediate impact.

According to the report, “Lazio are pursuing a move for West Ham United winger Felipe Anderson. The attacking midfielder, who primarily plays off the left flank, is surplus to requirements at the Hammers. His inconsistency means manager David Moyes is happy to lose him for an affordable fee. And the Daily Star says Lazio may look at Anderson as an alternative to David Silva, who has turned them down. Moyes wants to raise money for his own transfers, so he would welcome a big offer from the Italian club. Anderson has two years left on an £80,000-a-week contract with West Ham.”
